We are seeing an increase of impatient YSA who skip the LDS account login process and register as non-members. This creates a lot of extra work for our secretaries. Please take the time to login and register as a member if you are one. Thank you!


Attached please find a list of the current Adult Religion classes offered around the valley by various stakes. Feel free to call the teachers for more information. If the info is in red, it hasn't been updated yet.

FAQ--Which ward am I in?

Go to Type in your address. Your ward(s) should appear. If you are 18-30, you can go to a family ward or a YSA ward. Thirty-one and above attend a conventional ward. Five new YSA stakes covering the Phoenix Valley were created June 9-10, 2012 and they are now showing up on the website referred to above.

FAQ--What is LDSSA?

LDSSA stands for Latter-day Saint Student Association. All students at MCC who are institute students are automatic members of the LDSSA Club, which is our on-campus club. As an institute, we are striving to increase our on-campus presence. We appreciate any volunteers who help with events that we hold on campus, such as Clubs Carnival, Fall/Spring Bash, service projects, etc.

FAQ--Do I need a parking permit?

No. We have not had to resort to using permits to park in our lot. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to lock your car and turn your lights off!

FAQ--Who can attend institute?

Institute is for all young adults 18 to 30 years old. It's never too late during the semester to join an institute class. Every young person, single or married, student or non-student, is encouraged to attend institute. A post-secondary student over 31 may also attend institute free of charge. For non-students older than 31, please click on our News Item "Adult Religion Classes."

FAQ--Can my 14-year-old homeschooled/MCC student take an institute class?

Institute classes are targeted for those individuals 18-30 years old, and we encourage homeschooled students to enroll in and attend their local seminary classes. For any exceptions, you and your student will need to visit with the Institute Director. Please call 480-964-2652 for an appointment.

FAQ--Can I post my business card?

We find that many people have posted business cards to promote their private businesses. We also receive requests to post announcements for theatre/dance/music productions, or to raise money for a good cause. Church policy prohibits us from posting all such advertisements. We are only allowed to publicize for activities sponsored by another institute or a church unit, and the flyer/poster must state the name of the sponsoring unit. We remove and discard any postings not in line with these policies.
